There has been a surge in "Web Application Frameworks" for Perl recently. We have Maypole, Catalyst, Jifty and the more traditional CGI::Application and CGI::Prototype. When sitting down to write a new application, it can be confusing and time consuming to go over all of these various frameworks looking at the samples and digesting lists of plugins and configuration options. In the interest of helping, I will demonstrate how to create an address book/PIM application using the Catalyst framework. This is simple enough to walk through the code in short period of time, but complicated enough to require the use of some more complicated example code than one often finds in tutorials.
